There's a four page spread on the Nocturnal convention - and a pic of me and my friends on the dance floor - *dies of embarrassment*

Amber Benson has really nice hair and I want her shampoo.

I noticed that theres a mention of the Kittens when the article starts talking about Amber -
"She had been followed to the convention by a vast congregation of adoring "Kittens" from her internet fanbase..."

Vast? Uhm yeah right.
The issue is not out here yet, bugger, I am very curious now. For the record, *we* did not ask her to show her butt to the whole Nocturnal. She did that all on her own.

Oh please. Since when has four people constituted a 'vast congregation'? And just for the record, I had my ticket long before I knew Amber was going to be there.

Have to say though, I felt a distinct flush of pleasure at the kitty board getting a mention. Nice one. Hee hee...

Vast congregation my a**...and the next bit of the sentence actually goes

" ... and she gamely flirted with them giving a lively talk ..."
No recollection of that at all. Did she?

But, nice pics of the event and heh, James looked really good *sigh*

Nope Halcyon, I do not recall that either, but maybe that is because I am deaf and Dutch.

I do remember something about Amber having nice hair.

I'm just quoting what I've been told is in the article. And don't forget that theres the famed 'journalist licence' .

Well she didn't flirt with the kittens. But she did give a kind of flirty talk, I mean, come on, all that talk about what a good kisser Aly is? And how long it took to film that scene? Plus, there was the 'Willowhand' comment too.

Sigh. I like flirty Amber though. God help me.

But then again, I pretty much like flirty anyone...

So like the good little kitty that I am...here are the relevant parts of the article.

Amber Benson gave her first talk. She had been followed to the convention by a vast congregation of adoring "kittens" from her internet fanbase and she gamely flirted with them, giving them a lively talk in which she nattered (amongst other things) the attention her arse had been receiving and the fact her grand-parents don't know she plays a "lesbian witch" on Buffy. As unlike a diffident and twitchy Tara as any actress could possibly be, Benson admitted that her favourite swear word "ends in T and ryhmes with shunt" and giggled like a schoolgirl on helium at times. In response to the question "Is Alyson Hannigan a good kisser?", Benson gleefully replied "It took all day. Very intense. We had an audience. Lots of guys in shorts. And she's a fricking amazing kisser!" She also told the tale of an encounter in a shop a few days beforehand when a stray tampon flew from her bag on to the counter in front of the assistant. Scrabbling to throw it back into her bag, thankful she had not been recognised, Benson was stunned when the oblivious assistant merely asked, "So, is Buffy really dead"

......

The gangly George Hertzberg sent Amber Benson into fits of girly giggles by sticking a microphone up his nasal cavity.

.......

There were too many highlights to list here, though the biggest surprise was the unexpected imp-like gorgeousness of Amber Benson, who rounded of the weekend by jigging spiritedly to 'It's raining men'. Well it wouldn't happen on Buffy.


And there ends the article...reading this brought back so many happy memories.


Edited because I can't type

All of the good...all of the time.

You know, I knew we should have stayed longer on Sunday. Who can resist 'It's Raining Men?'. Not me.

Didn't she say her favourite swear word starts with a C and rhymes with shunt? I could be mistaken. LOL at the school girl on helium giggling. How true, and how contagious. Bless her.

In any case she may have learned a few new ones thanks to that book Halcyon gave her.

Ah and yes the tampon story. A true classic that one.

Her swear word went "Starts with C end with T and rymes with shunt" but I guess they could not print that

Well that is just lame, and didn't she say her other favourite swear word starts with an F and rhymes with luck? Or was that you?
Yes, these are the kind of questions that keep me occupied. I am such a philosopher.

Ah yeah see, I knew it wasn't a dream. I do believe she has quite an extensive vocabulary, but my favourite part of her talk was her last sentence: "I am a dirty lesbian witch". Ah yes, so she is and she smells like Willowhand. There. I used up my naughty/spicy quotum for today and all I did was repeat what she said.

I stuck the magazine on a shelf. Then I realized that on the spine it said " SFX August 2001 'Alyson Hannigan is a frickin' amazin' kisser!' - Amber Benson"

Does this sell more copies?

Hey, did you see the pics inside where Amber's writing on a piece of paper; it says "My name is Amber" heh heh. She's so funny and cute. Perhaps that was the time she was asking people if they wanted her to write dirty words on their stuff...

Right you are Ruth...The words Amber, Aly and kiss in the same sentence, hell the same article, are sure to inspire the Kitties to open thier wallets. Lord knows I would if I had access to the magazine...

You want a copy? I don't mind getting one for you if you do. Should have said when I was in town yesterday.

And Teri, she never asked me if I wanted dirty words either. I guess maybe she thought I'd know enough of my own...
